an education. tomorrow is the united nations international day of the girl, which the u.n. says is about highlighting, celebrating, discussing, and advancing girl's lives across the globe. and tonight on the eve of the international day of the girl. this girl, one of the bravest girls in the world, a 14-year-old is lying near debt after being shot in the head and the neck on her school bus yesterday for nothing more than wanting an education for herself and other girls. religious extremists planned to assassinate her on her school bus. the man who got on the bus and shot her and got away is, no doubt, very, very proud of himself tonight. his spokesman certainly is. yes, homicidal religious extremists have spokes menmen in pakistan. ehsanullah ehsan sent a letter to the media today defending the assassination attempt and his defense of the assassination attempt contains specific sigh takings from the koran. the spokesman said, whom so ever leads a campaign against islam and shariah is ordered to be killed by shariah. he has never lead a campaign against islam but religious extremists see
, it was clearly planned. that to me, was the worst thing that the president could have done. at the u.n. said-- >>> two weeks later. >> he said, this was youtube-- >>> the president knew within 24 hour what is the truth was. i am told that they saw this in real time. there is a video real time. >> but they see it pre-time. i have looked -- i have looked at all the reports, benghazi, april 6, april 11. they have known about the problems months and months and months and months. >> sean: why would they deny security and deny they denied it. >> well, because there is an investigation. look, the republicans want the fast & furious, they want the documents right away. look at what we got-- >>> executive privilege. >> no. >> sean: stonewalling and executive privilege. >> it takes time to get answers to the american people-- >>> last word -- we have to go. >> stephanie cutter is doing anything to limit the damage. the presidential debate, they have been sliding, mitt romney has pulled ahead. they will stop at nothing to try to stop the lies. joe biden, what he did last night, might be illegal, i am n
point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what might come out of the state department. let me just say this. what i find disgusting, and american people should find disgusting, on the night this was happening, before we knew the ambassador had been killed, mitt romney decided to politicalize a tragedy in the middle east. >> that is what the vice president said.
of state hillary clinton and the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. so what are they going to say? there is a separation between those two and the rest of the state department and the white house? what side will they be on? >> steve: because to many, it looks like there has been some sort of cover-up going on and hillary clinton at the ends of her tenure as secretary of state, the last thing she wants, 'cause she wants to run for president, is a full blown scandal. but that's what -- >> gretchen: the last thing president obama wants as well is a full blown scandal 27 days from the election. >> steve: sure. but the thing is if her state department is out there, you know, pushing through susan rice, it was spontaneous, it was about the movie when it wasn't, the one thing that hillary is on the griddle for responsibility wise is the security. would they all be dead today if they had the proper security? a lot of people are asking themselves that. >> brian: right. by the way, i am looking for a scandal. so if you're interested. by the way, mitt romney was getting -- he's getting more
including u.s. ambassador to the u.n., did interview after interview connecting the attack to anger over a movie. bill: want to start with peter doocy live in washington. the why is the state department now saying the attack not spontaneous? >> reporter: because lethality and number of armed attackers is unprecedented in recent diplomatic history. plus there was no protest in front of consulate on the night of the attack. the people inside the compound heard explosions before 9:00 p.m. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a plea planned attack. -- preplanned attack. it is not reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> reporter: we know the administration did internally classify as a terrorist attack within 24 hours. we expect to hear a lot more three hours from now in a house oversight committee hearing just across the street that is being billed simply as the security failures of benghazi. bill. bill: i'm looking at four witnesses. any heads up what they will say, peter? >> we heard a little bit from two of
with the fact in libya we overthrew qaddafi and probably intended to all along even though the u.n. resolution just talked about protecting libyan civilians a year ago. with syria we're obviously at a fundamental impasse on how to handle did dilemma. what you're seeing a bit of frustration, vladmir putin a proud man and obviously back in the presidency doesn't think he needs american money. you know he is probably right at one level. idea of giving foreign aid to russia is counterintuitive given how well russia's petroleum sector is doing at this point. so it is not all crazy but it does cause some concern given that it seems to have a little bit of spite behind it as well. jenna: looking at just the overall context as you mentioned because a couple weeks ago i think it was about a week and a half ago, we learned certain u.s. aid organizations operating inside the country are essentially getting kicked out. they can't operate in the country anymore. because we're on the eve of this vice-presidential debate and we've seen back and forth between the president and governor romney on russia we wan
. >> they suspect the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in a speech he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time
at what has happened, they said the u.n. ambassador to say that this was because of a protest in the youtube video. it took the president two weeks to the knowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times he talked about the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we're going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? this is becoming more troubling by the day. the first blame the youtube video, now they're blaming the romney-ryan ticket. host: talk about the role of the intelligence community. guest: clearly, they have a huge role. you rely on your intelligence community to give you that information. we're talking about a country where come up for decades, we did not have access. a country that is in the middle of civil war. i consider environment where the information could be changing by the minute. if the administration says the information they were operating under, that is information that will come out in the process, that is
as this happened who did they send on the sunday talk shows? the u.n. ambassador. i have no doubt in my mind that clearly as these things are happening the white house is involved. when you have terrorist-type activities the white house is involved. no doubt about that. megyn: it many supposition. it's not that somebody has leaked that to you and you have seen a document. >> what you will see as early as today as as late as tomorrow, official on the ground requesting more materials. there were two bomb cans of been gassive our facility. i'm not aware of anywhere else in the world where our physical facility was actually bombed and it was bombed twice. you had the british ambassador, there was an assassination attempt. and coming up on 9/11 the white house says there was no actionable intelligence that there may be problems in benghazi? megyn: why would we do that? you have got whistleblowers telling you the requests for increases security were being made to the state department and you say they were not only told no, but that security was reduced. why would we do that? >> my personal belief,
to announce this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. talked about the youtube video six times. if we are hit by terrorists, we will call it what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in tehran has a marine detachment guarding him. should we not have the same for our ambassador in benghazi, a place where we knew there was a al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. now they're trying to blame the romney-ryan ticket for making this an issue. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security, the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. number two, governor romney, before he even knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements and was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about weakness, i don't understand what my. friend is my. >> what were you first told about the attack? why were people talking about protests when people in the consulate's first saw armed men attacking at the fence, there were no protestors? g
to be struggling under another u.n. envoy. the problem that is the u.s. and many others had hoped that by working with russia, because of the dependence on russia for a lot of the military equipment and other support that they could convince assa do end the repression if he did not step aside begin to think about a transition. that approved unable. they were not able to sustain that efficient. they argued and continued to side with the syrian line that this is, these are dangerous foreign fighters. this is a terrorist campaign, and that others are provoking this, that the syrian regime is simply trying to defend the sovereignty. the diplomatic course is not promising still, but i think neededs to be renewed commitment to the effort to tri to work the european union and the gulf states to tri to end this because what we have seen now with the potential for the side withening, widening conflict. the other option is the notion of equipping the syrian army directly. this has been an idea that has been out there for sim time. they have been getting weapons. the u.s. has revided at least openly said it
, some i do not know as much about. i do not know specifically about the u.n. tax, but foreign aid is always a topic that people grumble about, how much the nation is spending helping countries around the world, especially during this time in the u.s. economy when so many americans have been struggling. i will say foreign aid is a small percentage of the budget when you look at the broader all they said the government has. -- outlays that the government has. i think the number is about 1%. i know those that support foreign aid will say is a slice and it does do a certain amount of work the state department believes is important in terms of helping friends and allies around the world. i'm sorry i do not know more about the specific tax. as part of the nation's new health care law that was passed in 2010, there is going to be provisions where health care providers will be taxed or fined if they are not meeting standards in patient care. that is part of the effort to bring down the cost of providing patient care by penalizing those providers that are not hitting standards. so, what th
, the national health care. i believe he wants to take away our gun rights and hand them over to the u.n. for them to control, and to have them be in control of our constitutional laws. his moral fiber as a parent and a husband and a father of two children -- his moral fiber, he compromises to the gay community for votes. no husband or father would ever been his moral code to say it is ok for gays to be married to one another. if you tear down the moral fiber of this country, you tear down god's protection as well. why do you think we have droughts and hurricanes and tornadoes growing in a larger scale? host: we have a couple more calls. president obama, just a few minutes ago, in ohio. mitt romney, also in ohio. meanwhile, ohio congressman and speaker of the house john boehner has been in new hampshire, talking about efforts on the democratic side to win back the house. [video clip] >> nancy pelosi is working hard. even though they want 65 seats -- even though we have won 65 seats from the democrats, she only has to get where 25 seats to get my job but the only way she is going to get t
of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice on september 16th, five days after the incident took place. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> today congress is set to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether the administration originally down-played the link to terrorist elements. >> in "newsweek" this week we're talking about susan rice coming under fire. it seems, though, this story continues to evolve. the white house can't get the story straight. at first it was the video. then it was a spontaneous demonstration, and then it was a terror plot. now
terrorist attack, they send out our u.n. ambassador to tell everybody, on all major news shows that this was a spoon stainio iospontaneo demonstration bred by a hateful video. you don't have spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. look, iraq, because we didn't leave a residual force behind, al qaeda's back and iranians are exerting their influence. in afghanistan because the president overruled his military advisers time after time we're seeing this terrible afghans in uniform killing americans in uniform. the palestinian/israeli peace process moved forward, not at all, and the iranians continue on their path to nuclear weapons and 30,000 people have been killed in syria and we do nothing. it's really a failed leadership that i think that mitt romney will be able to capitalize on. finally, t"the military times" s a newspaper for the military men and women, they took a poll of the men and women in uniform, guess who won by almost 3:1, mitt romney, those people know about national security. >> senator, we hear time and time again there will have to
: mccain. host: we have dennis from ohio. birthplace of neil armstrong. wire u.n. decided this morning? caller: -- why are you undecided this monring? -- morning? did this help to bring some clarity to you? caller: no. the vice president kept interrupting his coworker. he laughed a lot. i don't know if he thought the issues were funny. as far as the president and his running mate, obama said he has created a lot of jobs so the unemployment goes down, but he does not say whether that was manufacturing jobs, flipping hamburgers someplace, and and his cohort says if he gets elected, he will create 12,000 new jobs right away. well, are they in manufacturing? are they going to make government bigger than it is? neither party is clear on anything as far as i am concerned. as far as foreign policy, every time a foreign country sneezes, the united states has to run over to wipe their nose. we have spent millions of dollars over there in wars we are not going to win. i cannot see staying over there and getting our soldiers killed for nothing. that is what i think of the their party. host: that
contributor and a new book called "here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the loss of freedom." nice to see you. welcome to the show. >> good to be here. >> david: a moment from the debate where paul ryan defends himself on medicare, substantive argument about this particular issue. take a listen. >> they put a new obama care board in charge of cutting medicare each and every year to lead to deny care for current seniors. the board, 15 people. the president is supposed to appoint him next year and not one needs medical training. social security, if we don't shore up social security when we run out of the ious, and the program goes bankrupt, 25% across the board benefit cut kicks in on the current seniors in the middle of their retirement. we'll stop that happening. >> david: so that was a big moment for vice president biden hoping to pigeon hole congressman ryan on the medicare,, the thing he supported cutting that money on that program. who won that moment? >> guest: i think ryan was very impressive in defending his position on that. that was ryan's key vulnerabili
